  • [Mays] is well matched by McClure, Wilmot, and Martin, who renders every gesture of her reticent character telling beyond words.

  • What Mother's Day does is provide a way into that story - a touching, human, desperately sad, but ultimately inspiring way in.

  • It was as compelling an opener as you could get, yet how wrong "compelling" sounds since we're talking about the murder of children.

  • It's brilliantly judged. Leather knows that the real source material is emotional enough and leaves the cast to give economical performances. Nothing is overblown.

  • Leather was able to explore several ideas sensitively and in depth, including the different ways people grieve, and why one child's death receives a lot of attention while another's might pass by almost unnoticed outwith the family.

  • This was a fine, emotionally absorbing drama that succeeded as a commemoration of individual courage and a wider affirmation of just how much can be achieved when people stand up together against violence and terrorism.
